Alleged Tillicum Park Gangsters Sentenced to Prison

00:15 |


pair of alleged Tillicum Park Gangsters pleaded guilty to unlawful delivery of a controlled substance earlier this month and five other possible Lakewood gang members await prison sentencing or trial, according to the Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney's Office. The Tillicum Park Gangsters are affiliated with the Black Gangster Disciples, and the Lakewood Police Department Gang Unit is familiar with their organization in Tillicum, one of the poorest neighborhoods in Pierce County. JD Gaines pleaded guilty to two counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and was sentenced to more than one year in prison on Sept. 5, according to the attorney's office. On Sept. 13, Leroy A. Clark was sentenced to 28 months on similar drug dealing charges. Five others are being charged for suspicion of drug dealing and a violent crime. Patch originally reported on the Tillicum Park Gangster busts in May. "Our goal is not only to get these defendants off the street, but also to send a message that deters gang violence in our community," said Pierce County Prosecutor Mark Lindquist in a press release. The Lakewood Police Department Gang Unit believe the purported gang members wanted to increase their drug dealing activity by monopolizing Tillicum apartment complexes in Lakewood. Tillicum and Woodbrook have the lowest property value in Pierce County. Eleven members of the believed TPG were charged with multiple counts of drug dealing charges, but only seven were arraigned, according to charging documents. Lakewood Police believe the organized criminal operations also include weapons violations, witness intimidation, drive-by shootings and murder, according to a Pierce County affidavit. Intelligence from informants and search warrants dated back to 2009. Below are five alleged TPG facing trial or pending sentencing: Andre Wright Jr. — Trial was continued for robbery in the first degree and unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. Damien J. Warren — Warren pleaded guilty to unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. The district prosecutor will recommend 60 months, according to the district prosecuting office. Marvian Martin Sr. — Martin Sr. faces two counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. A plea is scheduled later this month.  Ramona Dillard — Dillard has a plea date scheduled for October for unlawful delivery of a controlled substance. Cornelius Clay — Clay faces three counts of unlawful delivery of a controlled substance and has trial scheduled later this month.
